PLS 3025. Fundamentalisms (3 credits)


Crosslisted: (REL 3025)
Starting in the 1970s, there has been a substantial growth in the strength of religious radical movements sometimes known as "fundamentalist," which seek to manifest their religious faith in the political arena. The course will examine these phenomena in comparative perspective primarily in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We will focus on the religious players in the Middle East conflict. Special attention will be given to the place of Jerusalem as a focal center for religious extremist activity.
